PMU stands for Permanent Make-up, also known as micropigmentation. Some people refer to micropigmentation as cosmetic tattooing, which is incorrect. The principle seems to be similar to tattooing in that a pigment is implanted into the skin, but the techniques, pigments and devices are quite different. Terms such as ‘eyebrow tattooing’ or ‘eyeliner tattoo’ give the wrong impression and should therefore be avoided.
Permanent Make-up or micropigmentation can be used to accentuate strong points and correct or camouflage defects. Micropigmentation has many applications, but the most popular are:
Eyebrows – hair stroke or shaded
Lips – lip liner
Eyes – eyeliner
Permanent Make-up – Eyebrows
The eyebrows are perhaps the most important part of the face: they frame the eyes and give the face expression. Eyebrows that are too light, too thin or non-existent can be naturally enhanced and improved with micropigmentation. For example, using hair stroke or shading methods, depending on the client’s wishes and skin type. The latest technique for eyebrows in permanent make-up is the hair stroke technique. It is used for creating the most natural brows possible. As each individual hair is pigmented separately, it is far more natural looking than a solid fill.
Permanent Make-up – Lips
Skin aging can cause the lip contours to fade. A natural lip liner can permanently restore the shape of your lips and gives your lip line more definition. A PMU lip liner can also correct asymmetrical lip lines for a more proportionately shaped mouth. The so-called ‘full lips’ color treatment gives a natural color to pale or faded lips.
Permanent Make-up – Eyes
Eyeliner is the easiest way to enhance the beauty and expression of the eyes – whether a subtle liner on just the top, the bottom or both the top and bottom. Permanent eyeliner gives a natural look that is more subtle and neat than regular make-up. The great benefit of permanent make-up is that it won’t smudge throughout the day. Permanent make-up stays perfectly in place day in day out, from early in the morning till late at night, on vacation, in the sauna and while working out.
In the case of non-exisiting or very light eyelashes. Emphasis of the eyelid wreath when eyeliner is not desired!
Very natural-looking freckles!
Permanent make-up in Elke’s Day Spa is not completely painless, but is generally not perceived as pain. Thanks to the anesthetic creams there is minimal discomfort. Every customer is different, some will feel scratching some will feel a strong hurts and some feel very less.
But you know:
Beauty is unfortunately sometimes painful!
Almost everyone. Women and men who want to look great at any moment of the day, for those who need corrections, for people with allergies to regular makeup, for people who are active in sports. Permanent makeup is accepted by each population group.
In general, Permanent Make-up will always be present. The intensity of yourPermanent Make-up fades in the course of time. However, this is completely dependent from person to person. This is partly due to the natural cell renewal, the immune system and the influence of UV light.
This has never happened. Before we start with application, the shape will be drawn. You can choose the color that suits you best. Only when everything is to your complete satisfaction, the pigmentation procedure will begin.
Absolutely. Permanent Make-up is not intended as replacement for evening makeup, it serves in particular to accentuate. Additional make-up can always be applied for a evening out.
Generally it takes about 1 to 1½ hours, including the consultation, drawing the shape, color choice and pigmentation procedure.
Basically after the application of Permanent Make-up there is no special after care needed. To ensure that your permanent make-up will be optimal, i will give you guidelines for after care during the healing of the skin.
No. The first week, the pigmentation is significantly darker than the final result. Within the first week of healing the intensity of the color will become about 40% softer. Due to the natural cell renewal, the end result of pigmentation will be visible after a period of approximately 3 to 5 weeks.
Yes. We work only under the strict rules of the Health Authorities. For every treatment a new sterile needle is used which will be destroyed immediately after the treatment.Indeed. However every morning is there a make-up artist who is styling your eyebrows, drawing a crisp eyeliner for you or correcting the shape of your lips? Does this make-up artist also accompany you on holiday to quickly redo your make-up as you step out of the ocean or the swimming pool? It is not just the line or contour, it comes to overall convenience that you will experience every day for years.
The principle is similar to each other. With both procedures pigment is placed into the skin with needles, but that is the only similarity. The equipment as well as the composition of the pigments, and the techniques is completely different.
Temporary tattoos do not exist. Permanent makeup pigments fade because they are deposited less deeply into the skin and the compositions of the pigments are different. When faded, the remains of the Pigments are hardly visible anymore between lashes or along the lip line. However, total disappearance does not happen.
